Ya basta with the news. We need #PaisaZumba.

Well, well, well. What a week of news. Bad news. I need a distraction.

If you tuned into the news anytime this week, you would’ve probably wondered what the world is coming to.

Among the headlines: you saw violence in Oaxaca, México; you heard about US Supreme Court decision which deadlocked Obama’s plan to shield immigrants from deportation– leaving millions of families desolated; you were appalled at the highly anticipated  results from Brexit, in which the Brits basically gave the EU the middle finger and left the world scrambling to figure out what to do next. (You don’t think this affects you? Just check your 401K- or don’t. And I don’t want to think how this could affect the November election. Dare I say?)

But enough already. Ya basta. It’s a Friday, it’s summer and I feel like dancing.

(O como dicen en México, es viernes y el cuerpo lo sabe.)

I came across this video on my Facebook feed, courtesy of my fabulous friend, Diana R. and now I’m hooked. Everyone, meet Eddie G.

Who is this guy? He’s FUNNY and dances like nobody’s business. Just what we need to balance out the news of the week.

His Tiburcio character is my new favorite thing. His Zumba Chona is quite the workout. His Spanglish is just my cup of tea. Like when he says “It’s good for the pompis!”

Ojalá que te hable “la Ellen” Mr. Eddie G! I’m cranking up the views on your youtube channel.

So fight the anxiety with dancing. Let’s forget the challenges for a bit. A little humor goes a long way. Or try humour– if you happen to be a Brit and need to dance off the shock today.

Here’s the link to Paisa Zumba, to the tune of “La Chona” from Los Tucanes de Tijuana.

Have a good weekend. ÁNIMO!!
